And of course, they make a great stocking stuffer!
7. Kendra Scott Bianca Cuff Bracelet In Rose Gold Drusy $60
I am probably Kendra Scott’s biggest fan – well one of them at least! Whenever I wear her jewelry I get complimented on it, or make a new friend who loves her pieces as well.

9. Henri Bendel Candle in Champagne $30
But first, champagne! Need a little “chin chin” in your life even at times where drinking wouldn’t be appropriate? (Surprisingly, it isn’t always 5 o’clock when you want it to be.) Light up this candle and indulge yourself in some aromatic bubbly. You’ll feel pampered and refreshed because yes, you do deserve it.
10. The Estee Edit Flash Photo Kit $40

11. Rocksbox Subscription $49-149
I’ve been using Rocksbox for close to a year now and cannot tell you how much I love it! It has gotten me into jewelry (especially Kendra Scott and Loren Hope!) and has made me appreciate the power of a statement necklace, bracelet or earrings. This is the perfect gift for the indecisive shopper (ehhem, must I name names?) and the neat freak – instead of keeping the jewelry, you send your set back for a “refresh,” meaning that it won’t take up space on your dresser because you’ll be switching up your collection instead of hoarding it!
Their gift giving options are as follows: 3 month membership + $10 gift card = $49, 6 month membership + $25 gift card = $99, 12 month membership + $50 gift card = $149
You can use this code: FELICIABFF74 for a free month of Rocksbox! (Guilt-free guilting for yourself, am I right? 😉

13. Jo Malone London Cologne Collection $115
When it comes to beauty it’s always necessary to look to the Brits for inspiration. This cologne sampler has all of the season’s best scents wrapped up in one box. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Um, does this even need an explanation? The Urban Decay Naked palette has been a beauty must-have for the last few years, and this updated palette is the best of both worlds. Both cream and mineral shadows are at your service!
15. Henri Bendel West 57th Pom Phone Case $68
This statement case is the ultimate #BendelGirl gift this season. The phone case comes in this luscious purple with a convertible pom (because sometimes a girl needs to put her phone in her pocket.) It’s an awesome piece that will protect your phone and show off your NYC style.
16. Osea Ocean Cleansing Mud $48
I’m such a big fan of face masks and anything to do with cleansing or exfoliation – just ask my roommates. I’m always looking for someone to do a face mask or exfoliating treatment with me.
